Life goes on...

There have been a few changes as of late.  Ken had his spinal chemo last week, and was violently ill a few days after coming home.  To be expected, I guess, but still not much fun.

The worse, most shocking part for me, was the fact that with this chemo, his eyebrows fell out.  I knew it was bound to happen, but I still wasn't prepared for the shock of it.  It just makes him look that much sicker.  I mean, I know he's sick, but it makes it all that more apparent.

The good news is that his CT scan came back basically clear.  He'll have one done every 6 months for the next few years, just to be on the safe side.

He's scheduled to go back to Vancouver once more this month for treatment, then again in January.  I'm hoping he's well enough; I just want to get this over and done with.  Unfortunately, he's currently waiting to see a doctor as he's picked up a respiratory virus and is coughing up awful stuff - he'll pull through this, he's already proven how strong he really is.
